Just barely bigger than a dime!


Sliced bread? (365 days of writing prompts – Jan 27)

Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread? For me, it would probably be the tecnology that makes the information highway possible on the internet.

I live on a tiny island. It’s the size of the Canadian city I grew up in. My four older kids and most of my friends still live there, so the internet brings them closer. We chat by video conferencing or typing. We read about each other over facebook.

I also homeschool our youngest child, so when I need curriculum, I turn to the internet. Testimonials, recommendations, and even samples of curricula is available with just a few keystrokes. I can order it all with a few keystrokes, and within a few weeks it arrives on our island!

When we have trouble learning something, internet comes to the rescue. From how to explain to Peanut how to skip count from 10 – 100, or to learn a new crochet stitch, it’s all there, ready and waiting to be discovered!

And although sliced bread is nice, I tend to make our bread from scratch. Nothing beats the wonderful taste and smell!

Things I try to do every day…

  • Work on a handicraft – I try to create something with my hands every day. Lately I’m doing more cross stitching and tatting.
  • Take care of me! I know that it seems obvious, but some days I barely have the energy to brush my teeth and wash my face. Showers need to wait until the water is running warm, and some days this doesn’t happen! I know what you’re thinking, but I just can’t take cold showers. My body rebels and I get sick. I can’t wait till the water heater is installed!
  • Have some quiet time for just relaxing.
  • Write something, anything. 
  • Laugh. I miss laughing…
  • Remind my hubby how much I love him, how much I appreciate all he does.
  • Leave yesterday behind. I try, but it still manages to seep into today…
